Overview

Martin Scorsese's legendary concert film The Last Waltz is given the DVD treatment it richly deserves on this disc from MGM/UA. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. This film has never looked so good on home video. The real highlight is the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. Even those familiar with this film's amazing music will be surprised by the strength and clarity of the remastered sound. A Dolby Digital Surround track is available as well. English, French, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by director Scorsese and Robbie Robertson; a second commentary track featuring Levon Helm and other musicians who performed that night as well as rock historians and journalists who provide a history for the band and the songs they perform; a featurette that does a fabulous job of explaining how the film came together and how the shoot evolved from a simple 16 mm project into a full-blown 35 mm epic; and an essay written by Robertson. Finally, this movie, arguably the greatest concert film ever made, is available in a package that is the equal of its competition for that title, Gimme Shelter and Stop Making Sense.
